Letters From the House Between
spacer Letters From the House Between
Winter - #2 2014
Publication Date: 12/02/2014

Tonight the barred owls are calling. We hear them in the darkness beyond our deck. Some say they call, “Who cooks for you? Who cooks for youuuu?” We saw a long-legged coyote pass through the back yard, he paused for a moment to look in the patio door. Perhaps he saw Honeysuckle sitting in her pen, a nice little morsel nibbling apple branches. His mouth may have watered, but he trotted on. The evening crickets and peepers are silent now. It’s a sign of cold weather. The crickets die, I think, but the peepers and toads bury themselves and emerge next spring to sing again. We’ve been here five months.

Spring #2 2014
Publication Date: 08/17/2014

We live in a climate where the seasons are sharp. There is no mistaking them. Winter freezes everything including our senses; but they waken again with the shifting south wind, in slight rises in temps, in clouds changing from steel gray to white muslin, when it is still well below freezing, we sniff the air and say, “I smell spring!”

spacer A raven has been walking along the branches of an oak outside my office window, knocking little puffs of snow into the air as he goes. Chickadees have been bust taking sunflower seeds from the bird feeder on our deck. In the living room our Christmas tree is being decorated. This month marks the end of the calendar year, but in the Christian year the season of Advent marks the beginning. If the stories are true (and we are convinced they are) God interrupted history with incarnation, and now we await the return of the king, another grand interruption.

It is with this hope in mind that we try to understand life and culture, art and the history of ideas. If that isn't your hope we trust you will feel welcome. Perhaps you will find the worldview we attempt to embody to be plausible. Thanks for visiting.
